Last month a crowd of right-wing anti-Muslim bigots demonstrated outside a charity fundraiser organised by the Islamic Circle of North America in the city of Yorba Linda in Orange County, California. The Council on American-Islamic relations have released a video of these events. American Muslims, including families with young children, are subjected to shouts of “go back home” and chants of “Mohammed was a child molester”, while Republican politicians give speeches in support of the protest.
A local councillor named Deborah Pauly, referring to the ICNA meeting, states: “What’s going on over there right now, make no bones about it, that is pure unadulterated evil…. I know quite a few Marines who would be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in Paradise.”
